From Year 3 to Year 5 your child will follow the QCA schemes of work (National Curriculum), linked in with the 11+ Common Entrance syllabus. Years 6 to 8 follow the 13+ Common Entrance syllabus, which culminates in the examination preferred by most senior schools as their measure of entry from prep schools. This syllabus also serves as the basis for preparation for scholarship exams.

Across all ages, children are taught as much as possible from a practical stand point. Pupils have many opportunities to explore ideas of their own and work independently. Where practical work is unrealistic, we use interactive programs and interactive white boards to help the understanding of abstract concepts, for example, the study of atoms and molecules.
